Tottenham Hotspur fans have praised Timothy Eyoma for his performance against Porto last night.

The centre-back looked composed and assured in possession throughout, with his reputation growing considerably.

And even though Spurs conceded twice in the contest, Lilywhites fans were quick to praise Eyoma for his showing on social media website Twitter.

Tottenham went behind when Oliver Skipp inadvertently put the ball into his own net, and they quickly saw the deficit doubled when Santiago Vera scored for the Portuguese visitors.

Spurs when then unable to overturn to scoreline and make a comeback, as they slipped to a disappointing defeat.

Eyoma has, perhaps, not received quite as much attention of some of his teammates in Spurs’ under-19 side, but he is starting to gain praise.

Eyoma has fierce competition if he is to break into Tottenham’s senior side, as even at youth level he has Cameron Carter-Vickers ahead of him in the pecking order at the moment.
